In order not to think about how to get rid of building dust, think in advance how to block her way to other rooms.
Even if the repair has covered the whole apartment, hang temporary curtains made of polyethylene or thick fabric in the doorways.
You do not want to mess with the films, install temporary doors, which, in fact, are also films, only the design is equipped with a lightning in the middle and does not require any tweaks when installing into the opening.
If in the process of repairing the doors remain in place, and you expect to block the path of dust by closing them, do not flatter yourself, the dust is smarter!

- PVA based polyvinyl acetate paints removed with saturated soapy water. As an assistant, take a kitchen sponge with a hard side for cleaning.
- Dried acrylic paint surrenders before the pressure of degreasing agents, for example, alcohol, solvent or detergent. If the stain is emblazoned on your floor for more than a day, then the above recipes may turn out to be ineffective, now heavy artillery is used: gasoline, White spirit, kerosene, acetone and brake fluid.
The above fluids are extremely aggressive, so they can be applied only on a point with a soft cloth. The procedure is repeated 3-4 times with a break of 10 minutes.
If you have made a choice in favor of special tools, carefully scratch a spot of paint before applying it. Such a simple action increases the penetrating properties of cleansing liquids and pastes.
